comment svchost.exe Hogging CPU on Fresh XP Install
To add to your estimate on when this started, I did a re-install of XP with SP3 on an older laptop in early June and didn't have an issue with Windows Update and IE6.

This worked for me. In my opinion, MS shouldn't of made Windows/Microsoft Update so attached to IE. It should've been a dedicated service/application like in Vista+.. anyways, thanks for the info and it makes sense this was the problem now.

comment Mintty.exe - Passing script parameters via Windows Command Line
Yes, I will create a new question regarding how to send the output to sqlite3 as that's not related here. On a side note and to save assumptions: 1) The error "The system cannot".. is a Mintty.exe returned error that it can't find sqlite3, not a useless MS error. 2) I'm not calling this from .Net as of now because I wanted to make sure it works in Windows Command Line first, after that I can work on other integrations.

I feel my original question provided the necessary information to provide a helpful answer. However, I will accept your answer IF you edit it to support my original question contents of the mysql2sqlite.sh, a public script and has plenty of documentation and comments at the link I provided in my original question. I recommend changing your answer to your very first comment in this thread on how to run the script referenced in my question, which if you read again, has a successful command completed with desired results in Mintty Terminal, but, not from calling mintty from outside the terminal

Well this comment thread has become pretty much a ramble of basically nothing.

My original question was based around getting a solution to execute the linked script, you gave an answer that, yes, did execute a script but didn't reference anything related to my original question. If you would of wrote your answer in the way that it actually used my script and the parameters it needed, it would've been more helpful. As you can see from my question, I'm new to cygwin and am willing to learn if someone would take the time to teach.

comment Mintty.exe - Passing script parameters via Windows Command Line
Thanks for your reply. If I run this command: mintty -h always -e /bin/sh -c '/cygdrive/c/cygwin64/convert.sh -h 127.0.0.1 -u root -pMyPassword dbName| sqlite3 db.db3' it executes but the SQL commands that are meant for sqlite3 are posted to the console instead and not to sqlite3. If I run this command mintty -h always -e /bin/sh -c '/cygdrive/c/cygwin64/convert.sh -h 127.0.0.1 -u root -pMyPassword dbName| /bin/sqlite3 db.db3' mintty returns to Win command line error 'The system cannot find the path specified.' Any ideas?

If it's not too much trouble, could you modify your answer to accept the arguments for that script so I can see exactly what you mean with the pipes?
